There is more to an off-road-ready vehicle than a 4×4 drivetrain and a rugged appearance. You can also choose to modify your vehicle to make it truly versatile. Our Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep® parts experts at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM are always excited to help customers modify their vehicles, so we’ve compiled some modifications that are designed to enhance any off-road vehicle.
Tires are the base of any great off-road vehicle, and we’re not just talking any old street tires. We’re talking about rugged off-roading tires that are designed with deep treads and plenty of muscle. Off-road tires not only find traction on various types of terrain; they can also handle the beating from rough, uneven driving.
Another modification worth investing in is a solid lift-kit. A lift-kit can increase the ground clearance of your vehicle, and the more ground clearance, the better. Ground clearance is defined by how high your undercarriage sits above the ground. A good amount of ground clearance allows for greater versatility, as you won’t have to worry as much about scraping your delicate undercarriage against obstacles.
We also urge all off-road drivers to install skid plates beneath their vehicles before taking to the open road. Skid plates are the last wall of defense when your vehicle bottoms out, or scrapes against the terrain. Skid plates keep your undercarriage protected from debris as well, as rocks and gravel can get kicked up into this delicate part of your vehicle, causing some pretty serious damage.
